    Check out craigslist and ebay. Ask around for some swap meets. They are getting harder to find as the summer goes on, but they are out there.

    They should be easier to find through winter. People tend to sell when it gets cold, especially the further north you go.

    Perhaps, though the massive difference in fuel consumption would negate any of that.

    Yeah, but the bike's more fun by a longshot. Looks cooler, too.

    Maybe its me, but I beg of you, if you don't already, to get good leathers and a helmet goes without saying.

    A RL friend is still having problems from a motorcycle wreck a decade ago. :/

    Oh, Oh! Can I be part of the Classic Honda club?

    Here's mine;



    84 CB450SC Honda Nighthawk. My first bike, my first year riding. I've put over 4000 kms on it since March. Its got almost 56,xxxkms on it and runs great.

    I really want a bike with a kick start, however. I'm thinking about an old Triumph for my next bike, maybe a 650 or 750. I love old bikes, motor or otherwise.

    Nice scoot .... I love old Hondas!

    (FYI, my mid-sized auto gets the same fuel economy, and seats 5.)

    Doubtful. Emission laws are regulating grams per mile -- it's independant of mpg. While your bike is 14 times smaller, it still does not have EFI or catalytic convertor or charcoal cannister (maybe your truck doesn't either?). Supposedly cars have gotten 99% cleaner than the 60's (don't have the EPA source on that), but motorcycles are just getting cats it seems today.

    New scooters at my house.



    I'm anticipating 55-60 MPG on the Aero, 75 or so on the Rebel. I learned to ride first on an old CB360. Good times.

    tq, not preaching, but just saying... I know helmetless is lawful in the Land o' Lincoln, but I hope you're donning a brain lid when riding around.

    Wish I had a picture of my 86 Yamaha Virago 700cc to show, but sadly I sold it about three years ago. It was a classic. Only problem with some older bikes is that they were geared for the 55 mph speed limit and that is where they got their best milage.

    At 55 I'd get close to 50 mpg but at 65/70 it'd drop down to less than 40.

    Good buy with the Honda, my son has been bugging me about getting him a motorcycle. HMMMM>>>>...
